Crystal Energy and Chakras

Crystal energy can be used to increase the energies that help healing the body  and mind. Unbalances in the body’s energy field can be caused by the mind  focusing on negative aspects. Crystal energy helps change negative energies and  replaces them with positive energies.
Crystal energy affects your body by  balancing your body’s energy. I will not be touching here on the use of crystals  healing by means of a healer; however, I will focus on the use of crystal energy  and the theory behind healing crystals and gemstones.
crystal chakrasThe theory behind  crystal energy is to do with the Quantum theory. The Quantum theory considers  the Universe and all things that make it, as existing in an empty space with  forms of energy moving within each space. Of course this includes our physical  body which is a space with energy flowing infinitely through its own space. Your  body’s energy is used when you breath and when you show emotions and  thoughts.
The healing processes of crystals and gemstones are considered  a special flow of energy that change the way the destructive energy flows. This  special flow of energy can be helped by the use of healing crystals and  gemstones to improve and speed up the healing processes. Crystals and gemstones  can be used as a tool to give the healing flow of energy an important boost in adding power to achieve cures.
Crystal energy and crystals are a tool that can enhance not just your health,  but anything you undertake. Although crystals and gemstones occupy a different  space than our body and mind, within the Universe there occur an interaction  between your body and mind and the energy forms. This interaction is executed  through shared properties resulting from the energy flow.
For example,  the electromagnetic properties of a Quartz  crystal share the same type of electromagnetic properties of the body,  thus somehow the crystal’s electromagnetic  energy flows can positively interact with the same electromagnetic energy  flow of the human body.
The quantum theory helps to explain the effect of  crystals in our psychological and biological life. Even disregarding the Quantum  theory, the use of healing crystals and gemstones has been a beneficial practice  used by people throughout centuries. This practice is very beneficial for the  healing processes.
Crystals and their colors correspond to chakra points in your body. These have been found to have  cleansing and energizing properties that interact with the body causing them to  work on problem areas. Appling the energy of the crystals and gemstones to the  body enhances the cleansing and energizing effect to the body.
Below is a  list of the chakras and most popular crystals used in healing.
Root  Chakra: Jasper (bloodstone), garnet, onyx and rubies.
Second Chakra: Hematite  and moonstone.
Third Chakra: Citrine, amber and topaz.
Fourth Chakra: Rose  quartz and Chinese Fluorite.
Fifth Chakra: Aquamarine and turquoise.
Six  Chakra: Sapphire, turquoise and amethyst.
Seventh Chakra: Clear quartz and  amethyst.
